A story of love, war, loyalty and betrayal, Excalibur begins with the failure of Lancelot's rebellion and the ruin of Arthur's marriage to Guinevere. The Saxons, sensing the disunity of the Britons, seize the chance to destroy Arthur. The climax of the war comes with the legendary triumph at Mount Badon, and Arthur`s great victory. But the promises he made then come back to haunt him after the years of peace and glory.

Great twists on the story of Arthur enjoyed every minute and will no doubt listen to it again after reading the first two books again. I hope it’s not the last.

The continuing story of Arthur, the second in a trilogy which began with The Winter King. The novels bring Arthur and his world to vivid life. A man battling for his vision of the future in a brutal age, dragged down by suspicions and magics of the past, surrounded by intrigue, dependent on his skill at war and genius for leadership.

This second book in the Warlord Trilogy was exceptional. I enjoyed the different interpretation of the story of Arthur and portrayal of Lancelot as a coward and Guinevere as a cheat. Can’t wait to listen to Excalibur.

Uther, the High King of Britain, has died, leaving the infant Mordred as his only heir. His uncle, the loyal and gifted warlord Arthur, now rules as caretaker for a country which has fallen into chaos - threats emerge from within the British kingdoms while vicious Saxon armies stand ready to invade.

At first I didn’t think I would enjoy this as much as the previous Bernard Cornwell stories of Uthred. However it lived up to my expectations of a brilliant author and story teller. The narration was excellent and brought the story to life brilliantly.
I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys these tales of old.
